Charlotte Dog Bite Injury Attorneys

Representing Children & Adults for Dog Bite Cases in NC

When it is not fatal, a dog attack can cause serious injuries. Victims can suffer lacerations, disfigurement, and scarring. There can be psychological harm too, especially when the victim is a child. The victims of dog bites who suffer injuries, financial losses, and emotional distress may be entitled to compensation from the dog’s owner and the owner’s insurance company.

However, such cases can present complex factual and legal issues. You need a law firm that can conduct a thorough investigation, carefully analyze the results of that investigation, and skillfully advocate for you before a jury or in settlement negotiations.

Jetton & Meredith is an experienced personal injury team in Charlotte that seeks full compensation for the victims of negligence. In your case, we can investigate the dog attack, identify the medical care and rehabilitation services you need to recover, and place a value on financial losses and suffering. Jetton & Meredith provides aggressive representation throughout the state of North Carolina, seeking favorable results on your behalf.*

What to Do After a Dog Bite Injury

At Jetton & Meredith, we understand that in the aftermath of a dog attack, you may be feeling dazed, anxious, and unsure what to do next.

If you or a family member has suffered a dog bite injury, there are some important steps you need to take:

  • Get medical care: Even if the injuries do not appear serious, obtain medical care as soon as possible.
  • Try to identify the dog or its owner: Medical personnel will need to know if the dog has been vaccinated for rabies. If it hasn’t or the dog cannot be found, the dog bite victim may have to undergo a series of painful shots.
  • Write down your recollection of the attack: Dog attacks can happen suddenly, but do your best to remember the sequence of events leading to the attack and what happened afterward. If the dog has bitten other people or exhibited threatening behavior in the past, note that and make sure you tell us.

    Should we take on your case, we will conduct a thorough investigation and put our experience to work for you, fighting for a positive outcome.* We understand that you are going through a lot right now – rest assured that your well-being is our priority.

    In a free consultation, our Charlotte dog bite attorneys can explain your rights and discuss how we can help you. Call us at (704) 931-5535 to schedule yours today.
